This is my latest creation; a White Western Star. It's built mostly box stock except for lengthening the chassis, extending and altering the sleeper, adding fuel and plumbing lines, adding interior detail, changing to duel exhaust, adding rear fenders, and adding rear loading lights. Paint is Champagne Gold and Flat Black with a three coat overspray of Florida Roadstar Orange over both colors.

Very nice. Bending that exhaust must have been tricky. VERY NICE. What is the secret for getting those irritating side mirror together clean and squared like you did? Do you make a jig to hold everything? Love the big sleeper.

The side mirrors were built by placing the top bars on first and letting them dry completely, and then building down from there; one piece at a time. The stacks are very well known to everybody. They are simply cut down Ford L series, stuck in the Western Star's muffler. They sure look better than the stock Ford units.

Best build up of this kit I've seen yet. That color scheme just looks so right on it.

Hi,

Really nice build of a tricky kit. I like the way you said mostly box stock - looks to me like you've done a lot with this kit! Good idea with the paint and its turned out great.

Cheers,

Jim

Love it! B)

As a kid and all my years trucking I don't believe I ever saw any two Western Stars alike! They were all different and reflected I would guess the owner / driver's personality! :)

Doug, I didn't notice if you had said or not, but are the wheels on yours what comes in the kit?? I have an old wrecker that I used to drive that I plan to build from this kit and the front Alcoa/rear spokes is the setup it had.
